Add-On Type(s)

Plugin

Tags

Perfect for eCommerce environments selling items globally, this plugin allows you to instantly convert numeric values to alternate currencies, with parameters to round results to specific decimal places.

This lightweight plugin uses CURL to connect to google finance to allow you to convert any value to an alternate currency on the fly.

Base Tag

{exp:currency_converter:convert_currency 
    amount="100" 
    from="USD" 
    to="EUR" 
    round="down" 
    round_to="99" 
    decimal="2"}

Parameters

     
  • amount="100"
  • from="USD" (over 50 currencies supported)
  • to="EUR"
  • round="up|down"  Facility to round result up or down to next full value.
  • round_to="00"  useful for forcing the decimal place rounding to exact cents / pence, example - if result is $12.46 you can force result up to $12.99 for price consistency.
  • decimal="2"  - Number of decimal places to use.
